WE WILL WALK WITH EACH OTHER, WORK SIDE BY SIDE5.4.2021Tuesday

Rather than getting aggravated at each other, exasperated, whining, or whatever emotions rise up in times of disagreement, why not recognize that our differences may actually help us balance out our needs?

TAKE A LITTLE MORE TIME 4/22/2021 Thursday EarthDay

LIVING FAITH LOCALLY 4/6/2021 TUESDAY

Ever since I began to study religion, I have been struck by the impact politics and religion have on each other, even how they can be used by each other. I don’tContinue reading “LIVING FAITH LOCALLY 4/6/2021 TUESDAY”
